They say it’s the journey, not the destination that matters – those people have clearly never had the pleasure of visiting Big Berry in Slovenia!
Hidden away in Bela Krajina, Big Berry offers those looking for a more authentic insight into the country a touch of luxury whilst immersing them in nature. The concept of Big Berry is simple; they connect quality, homegrown Slovenian brands with disconcerting travellers.
With the Kolpa River to one side and cattle paddocks to the other, massive trees punctuate the lush grounds of this ‘glampsite’, providing the perfect spot to unwind in between your included activities (of which there are plenty). Swim from the Slovenian side of the Kolpa River over to Croatia and enjoy zipping down the waterslide or using the tarzan swing to re-enter the river ready for your paddle home again – speaking of paddling, you can also borrow one of Big Berry’s canoes to venture further down the river. If you’d rather stay dry, Big Berry offer an amazing number of excursions (including local food and alcohol tastings, horse drawn carriage rides, canoeing tours just to name a few) or you can relax at the campsite one the swinging egg chairs or one a comfy bean-bag bed.
After a fun-filled day we loved returning to Big Berry. A snugly bed, fully equipped kitchen, satellite TV, included wifi and best of all, our own private spa pool on the deck – relaxing at camp was absolute bliss!
At Big Berry, each morning was started perfectly with a hand-delivered goodie basket of local breakfast treats; breads and pastries, yoghurts, fresh fruit, cheese and eggs, each day looked forward to discovering the new goodies at would be awaiting us on our balcony.
Breakfast was only the beginning though – we’ve never been as well fed as we were at Big Berry! Each and every meal was delicious and locally sourced. Throughout our time by the river we were taken to local restaurants and cafes and each time, we were blown away by the food on offer. We sampled a number of traditional meals and always had plenty of options on offer.
Thanks to the way Big Berry run their all inclusive programme, meals and activities are included which makes everything that much better! There’s nothing like chowing down on a delicious meal or heading out on an exciting activity without having to dip into your pocket again.
The Big Berry Experience
At Big Berry, there are a number of cabins onsite, each highly specced, and designed to maximise relaxation and privacy. Both Nathan and I spoke about how much we’d both like to take a cabin home with us, which is actually something you can do (well almost). These portable buildings actually double as show-homes and are available for purchase – I can imagine just how perfect they’d be sitting near the ocean or nestled in the forest.

We’d like to say a massive thank you to Big Berry for so generously hosting Nathan and I for the duration of our stay. We had an absolute blast in Slovenia and enjoyed every minute of our experience. As always, all thoughts are our own.
